Smile Designing

Smile Designing
Golden Proportion

  • The Golden Proportion is an essential component in creating your perfect smile. HYDERABADSMILES will design your smile using this natural law of beauty. The Golden Proportion essentially means your new smile will be designed to have the natural shape, size and contour to best fit your face and how your jaw functions. Beautiful and timeless smiles must be proportionate while being in harmony with the individual’s unique facial features – to emphasize their true beauty.
  • The roots of this theory can be traced back to hypotheses used during the renaissance, in both art and science. It is a mathematical equation based on the principles of ratio and geometric proportion. This relationship best conveys the philosophy of perfect aesthetic composition, using ratio and dimensional connection.
  • The application of the Golden Proportion principles can be applied to the human face. The Golden Proportion has been equally applied to the practice of Cosmetic Dentistry, and where consideration is made to essential components of the ‘perfect smile’. These principles of symmetry and balance are the critical

1)Central Incisor Width / Height Ratio

Do your front incisor teeth appear taller than they are wide like an up-right rectangle, not a square? The width/height ratio should be 75-80 %. For example, if the width were 8.0 mm and the height 10 mm, the ratio (8/10) would equal 80%

Mesial Inclination

Are your teeth angled properly?

Each upper tooth visible in the smile should have a slight inclination or tilt that is toward the midline (mesial) of the mouth. If these imaginary lines were extended downward they would meet or converge at or near the navel point over the stomach.

Midline Placement

Is your smile centered on your face and in your mouth?

The position of the mid-line between the central incisors should be on a line drawn from between the eyes and down through the nose, lips and chin. The angle of the mid-line should not be canted or tilted to the left or right, but should be straight up and down.

Color, Shading, Stains and Marketings

Is your smile centered on your face and in your mouth?

Are the teeth a uniform bright color or shade? Is one tooth darker than the rest? Are there white or dark spots or markings on the enamel?

Fractured teeth

Is your tooth broken?????
The fracture may be minimal to too high. Depending on its level it influences the smile and the speech as well as the function.

Smile At Rest

Evaluate the amount of teeth showing at rest or with a slight smile. Middle aged adults should show 2-4 mm of their upper teeth. This amount decreases with age as the “window” of the mouth begins to sag downward showing more of the lower teeth.

Vertical Height

Gum Line Symmetry

The gum tissue frames the teeth and forms a “curtain” for the teeth. Is the height and scalloping of the gum line symmetrical or matched evenly between the left and right sides? Balance and symmetry are important parts of what makes an attractive smile.

Gum Line Margin Heights

Is the level of the gum line over the lateral incisor lower than the central  incisor? The height of the gum line margin over the lateral incisors should be slightly lower than the height of the gums over the adjacent central incisor and canine teeth.

Gaps or Diastema:

A “diastema” is a gap between the teeth. Is there a space between your front teeth

Gummy Smile

A “gummy smile” is when too much gum tissue shows above your front teeth when you smile. How much gum tissue shows with a full happy smile? Ideally there should be only a slight amount (1 to 3 mm) of gum tissue showing above the front teeth when you smile. 

Gingival Zenith

What is the location of the uppermost height of the gum line over each tooth? The height of the gum line across the face of each tooth varies from tooth to tooth. It should be centered over each lateral incisor, and it should be 2/3rds of the way across the face of the tooth for the central incisors and canine teeth.

Smile Line 

Follows Lip :
Does your smile line generally follow your lower lip line?
The incisal or biting edge of the upper teeth should parallel or follow the contour of the  lower lip line in a relaxed or slight smile.

Horizontal line

  • Are your teeth on a parallel horizontal plane with your eyes or with the floor?
  • The left to right horizontal biting plane of the mouth should parallel the floor or the horizon when standing.
  • It should also parallel to a line drawn between the eyes (the inter-pupillary line).
  • The horizontal plane from the front to the back of  the mouth should also generally parallel the floor.

Swollen Gums \ Halitosis 

  • Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss, or are they inflamed or red around the borders?
  • Healthy gums do not bleed and are coral pink in color and are stippled in texture gum disease is linked to heart disease and can be very unsightly – and smelly! 
  • Oral bacteria cause tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath!
  • Any plan for an attractive smile and good oral health must include regular dental cleanings  and good oral hygiene it may also increase your sugar levels (diabetes )

Shape of Face = Shape of teeth


How the color of Gums effect your smile ??? 

Similar to the color of skin, the color of gums is also because of the cells called melanocytes. As we have various treatments for skin lightening, we also lighten your gums by using the advanced laser treatments.

Perfect smile is from the perfect match between the Skin=Lip=Gum Color 

How your teeth influence your speech??

  • Whistling when “S” is pronounced is because anterior part of the tongue is obstructed by the upper premolars making a groove too large for the escape of air.
  • Lisping when “S” is pronounced is due to the air space that is too small.
  • In the normal F and V sounds, the upper anterior teeth contact the lower lip at its highest point: If these sounds are indistinctive, the upper incisors must be moved either vertically or horizontally to the proper position.
  • When “Mississippi” is pronounced, there should be no contact of teeth.
  • When the patient pronounces the word “Emma”, there should be no contact of the teeth.

How Position of teeth influence breathing????

  • Causes of mouth breathing are the proclined teeth, anterior open bite, cross bite and incompetent lips.
  • Over time, patients with mouth breathing may suffer from abnormal facial and dental development, such as long, narrow faces and mouths, gummy smiles, gingivitis and crooked teeth.
  • When we breathe through the mouth, there is loss of saliva and dryness of the mouth and this can increase the risk of tooth decay and inflammation of the gums.
  • People that have dental problems can opt for treatment with orthodontic braces.
  • In patients with habitual mouth breathing an appliance is given called as oral screen or the thin rubber membrane is given to stop the air to enter the mouth.
